    Washington (CNN)South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham issued a statement Thursday calling for President Donald Trump to invoke national emergency powers to fund his border wall.

    "Speaker (Nancy) Pelosi's refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier -- even if the government were to be reopened -- virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier," Graham said in a statement. "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier."

    The statement from the key Trump ally came shortly after Graham said efforts to forge a deal with congressional Democrats had fallen flat.

    GOP senators gathered in Graham's office a day prior to discuss a deal that would bring an end to the ongoing government shutdown while securing money for Trump's proposed border with Mexico.

    Irony is that they all know the emergency route is going to be tied up in the Courts for some time, even if it gets quick passed to the Supreme Court, meaning Trump really don't care about border security, it is all facade, he is just desperate for a way out of the box he put himself in
    Look at that, the loony bints on here are thanking Arsechives.
